Washington: Researchers have successfully built and driven a drone using 3D printing technology.

Engineering students at the University of Virginia posted a video on YouTube showing that they designed and built a plastic turbine engine using 3D printing technology.

Executives at Mitre Corporation saw the video and issued an announcement to the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences that they were looking for two summer interns to work on a new project involving 3D printing

There's only one student, Steven Easter, and then the third one.

Major in mechanical engineering, responding to the recruitment announcement.

Easter's mission is to build an unmanned aerial vehicle in the summer using 3D printing technology.

In other words, plastic aircraft to be designed, manufactured, built and tested --flown.

Engineers use their consultants, Professor David Scheffler, an alumnus at the School of Engineering at the University of Virginia, and 20-

The veteran of the aerospace industry.

This is a difficult project.

Make a plane with 6. 5-

Foot wingspan, made of assembled 'printed' parts.

The students sometimes turn 80-

The university says it works an hour a week and there are many long nights in the lab.

He said he had confidence in them.

'Eventually, the aircraft was assembled and four test flights were conducted at Milton Airport near Keswick in August and early September.

It reaches a cruising speed of 72.

4 kilometers, is the third known 3D printed aircraft that has been built and flown.
